Virtual Reality Student Exhibition at the VGA Gallery

The first collaborative exhibit of curated virtual reality student works at the Chicago Video Game Art Gallery.

I co-created (with Brenda Lopez Silva) the first collaborative show presenting curated virtual reality student works from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) and the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) at the Chicago Video Game Art Gallery.

The works represent creative virtual reality immersive experiences created as part of 2019 class projects in my Creative Coding course and studets in Brenda Lopez-Silva's Immersive Environments course at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The show featured 7 collaborative projects:
Chaos Room | Kymia Robinson (UIC)
Human Footprint | Jade Almaguer (UIC)
TRNQWRLD | Kyra Jones (UIC)
Melting City | Minyoung Kang (SAIC)
Kinetics | Ilai Gilbert (SAIC)
Buoyant | Insun Kang (SAIC)

The exhibition was attended by more than 200 people including faculty and students from UIc, SAIC, Loyola, and Northwestern University.
